Angela Merkel pays a visit to Luxembourg

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was in Luxembourg Thursday morning for an official visit of two meetings.

The first was at 10:30am on Place Clairefontaine where Merkel was met with military honours and national anthems were played.

Then it was a short walk to the palace where Merkel was greeted by the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess accompanied by Xavier Bettel.

The two heads of governments then visited the birthplace of Robert Schuman, before moving on to the Mudam museum where a spot of lunch was planned.
